Chinua Achebe's Things fall apart

Bloom, Harold. (Added Author).

Summary: &Quot;Things Fall Apart", set in Nigeria about a century ago, is widely regarded as Chinua Achebe's masterpiece. Considered one of the most broadly read African novels, Achebe's work responded to the two-dimensional caricatures of Africans that often dominated Western literature. This guide contains a selection of contemporary criticism of this novel.
